Summary: I love comic books and enjoy it when I see them leap to the big screen. Of course, I enjoy it even more when they transition over to a video game platform as well. The trouble with games that tie-in with movie releases is that there usually not great games to enjoy and only end up being mediocre. Some end up being down right awful and completely frustrating.
Summary: With his Right Hand of Doom and his trusty hand cannon, the Samaritan, by his side, Hellboy stands ready to pound the ever-lovin' crap out of any evil that stands in his way. In the game, you control the titular character as you get to smash through an assortment of enemies like werewolves, frogmen, Nazi robots, and cybernetic gorillas in order to stop the Nazi scientist Hermann von Klempt from doing...something involving creating a new creature.
Summary: While the separate stories seem disjointed the overall game is fun if you're a fan of Hellboy. Non-fans might not appreciate the game near as much. So, Hellboy fans = 4-5 stars, casual fans probably = 3.
Summary: Hellboy: The Science of Evil is a very basic brawling/beat em up game starring the cat loving anti-hero, Hellboy. I thought the game was good, not great, but not completely horrible either. I love the Hellboy movies and the comics, so it's probably a good idea to be a fan of Hellboy before considering this game. I also love some games that are sort of mindless and don't bother with litering the game with puzzles.
Worse, even, than your "typical" movie adaptation game

Summary: I think we all know that movie adaptation games are normally so-so at best, but this game is terrible. Graphics: Horrible. One of those games where you can't really control the camera, and sometimes your character gets "lost" on the screen. Plus everything is vaguely "fuzzy". Game play: BORING. Same thing over and over again. Plot is completely not engaging in the least. Let me put it to you this way. I was 40 points away from 10,000 XBOX achievement points.
